Quote of the Day: Trey Songz’s “Invented Sex”

Yesterday, the Internet was abuzz about Trey Songz’s latest video “Invented Sex”. I wanted to see what all the hubbub was about so I attempted to watch the video at work. But something told me to ask a trusted friend, who I know had seen it, if it was safe for work, to which he replied, “GOOD LORD NOOOOOOOO!!!” I took his advice and didn’t dare watch it at work, but I did listen to the song instead. Big mistake, HUGE MISTAKE.

Not too long into my listening did I hear this,

“I’ve got a confession. I know we’re ’bout to sin, but your body is a blessing. Father forgive me.”

Yeah, he really said that. I don’t know how many people know he said that, but he did. I wonder how many Christians who have heard this song are aware of the fact that he said that? And how many of them just laughed it off as a clever use of words? And if you laughed it off and are still playing it, why? Seriously, why? There is nothing clever about it and we shouldn’t be laughing. We should be up in arms about it. He is explicitly mocking God. And I know someone is going to say, “It’s not that serious.” Well, if you think it’s not that serious, you must think God and committing sin is a joke. I’m not laughing and I’m fully ready for people to lambast me, but I’d rather be persecuted for standing up for God than sitting down for b.s.

I can go on for days about this because I am passionate about music all the while acknowledging that it has definitely been a stronghold in my life. But inasmuch as it is possible I will call a spade a spade and point out that which is not edifying to the body, and this is not edifying to the body. If you beg to differ, let me know. I’m always up for a spirited debate.

  1. wow. i had no idea he said that. i took one look at the song title and figured it was too much for me. i did, however, attempt to see what the big deal was about in the video. it bored me initially and i started fast forwarding. i guess the girls/people are all excited because the very sex-like scenes in it? i turned it off when trey & the girl were licking all over each other. i’m sure there was more.

  2. and while i agree with you about the song being a mockery of God and His laws, it feels like MOST people in the entertainment industry do that. it’s like the interview i saw where beyonce was asked about her sexually provocative performances and her relationship w/God and she was like “God understands that this is just entertainment.” wow… does He? and no, there is no edification there. your post is on point.

    • Your absolutely right that most people in the entertainment industry mock God not only by the music they make, but by the lives the lead. I thought about that while writing this post, but I wanted to stay focused on the matter at hand, knowing that I have covered the entertainment industry’s mockery of God before in my post about being a Vigilant Christian–you should check it out, if you haven’t. Oh and about the video, I watched it too and needless to say I felt quite corrupted and I wondered if any station would air it. BET has already declined to–at least they are doing something right.

  3. […] I’ve danced a lot in my lifetime, by myself, in big groups, facing a man, not facing a man, but the most memorable moments were the slow dances. They always took place with people I remember to this day. There were the slow dances that took place at high school homecomings and proms; the dances that happened at parties in college; the dances that happened in my room—get your mind out of the gutter; each of those dances I remember. They were slow, intimate, deliberate, sentimental, gentle, memorable. I remember them all. This Valentine’s Day, I want the slow dance. The real one, not the bump n’ grind one to Trey Songz’s “Invented Sex”. […]
